Participant Feedback

  • I wanted to say thank you for running last week's choice modelling course. I'm really pleased I attended and am confident in taking my analysis forward more robustly. I've already started using the reference material and NLOGIT for some of my analysis... Thank you again for such a well-run, well-taught course; I'd recommend it to anyone doing choice modelling. Anna Robak, PhD Candidate, Centre for Regulation and Market Analysis, University of South Australia
  • Thanks for an excellent course, it was very worthwhile and I hope to get to the experiment design course next year. Dr Sue Cassells, Senior Lecturer, School of Economics and Finance, Massey University, New Zealand
  • Just thought I would drop you all a quick e-mail to say I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 day course. It's not very often I attend a course and I learn something in every session. I certainly did that with this course. Now all I have to do is apply what I have learnt by developing choice experiments for my research. Thanks to everyone for making us welcome and for looking after us so well over the five days.

  • David, A wee note of thanks to you and your team for making my journey into DCM an enjoyable one. You have a really good process, the presenters know their stuff, this is really state of the art in postgrad/executive education. I found the content, scope and pace demanding, (which you want, the course would be a waste of time otherwise) but the structure and approach of the presenters nicely provided the remedy for this. Again, many thanks for a challenging and enjoyable week. Dr Chris Batstone, Senior Resource and Environmental Economist, The Cawthron Institute, New Zealand
